Classroom Testimonials

"Thank you so much for teaching me about water! I learned how much water I use in 3 days, how to conserve water, and most importantly why we should use less of it." (3rd Grade Student, Poudre School District)

"I had a lot of fun being a water scientist! I learned it is easy to conserve water. Three ways to conserve water are to take shorter showers, only turn the faucet on when you are rinsing your tooth brush, and if your toilet has a leak get it fixed." (3rd Grade Student, Poudre School District)
